The FireFly Electric Handspinner

Firefly Electric Hand Spinner ~Ultimate Package~

The Firefly is the perfect spinner for the fiber artist on the go as this has a built in 12 volt battery that lasts for 14 hours. It uses the 8 oz. or 32 oz. head/flyer/bobbin (same as on the MachIII). If you flip the head around you can use the SpinOlution yarn winder to skein your yarn. It comes with a car charger, A-C adapter and foot pedal. This spinner is whisper quiet. The SpinOlution Mach III lazy kate also fits on the back for ease of plying.

The FireFly weighs 11 lbs. 10 oz. and measures 8.5 wide 12 inches tall 13 inches deep assembled with the 8 oz. Art Yarn Flyer/bobbin. This is the first e-spinner that allows you to spin any yarn thickness from lace weight to extra chunky art yarn and everything in between. For anyone needing to produce a great quantity of handspun yarn this is the best machine.
